This book presents an overview of the importance of -amino acids in pharmaceutical sciences, and discusses the most important methods that have been developed for the preparation of enantiomerically pure compounds. Each method is described by the organic chemist who developed it, and so will be written with authoritative, first-hand knowledge. This is the first book to summarize new available methodologies for preparing -amino acids in optically pure form, a recent development in this field. It also provides methods for synthesizing optically pure precursors to pharmacologically active substances, including -lacatams.
